Ukash virus is at its peak, because more and more versions of this virus are detected by researchers and computer users. Gendarmerie Nationale Virus is one of the variants in the group, and even though it has been in the wild for a while, it has recently become extremely violent, which means that you should be ready for its attack, especially if you live in France. The virus displays a bogus alert containing a logo of Gendarmerie Nationale (the National Gendarmerie), which is supposed to scare users into believing that the police is about to arrest them. Instead of worrying how to get away with cyber crimes or how to pay the ransom – which is introduced as a fine – you need to delete Gendarmerie Nationale Ransomware. Please continue reading to learn more about this process.

The intimidating, screen-locking message is said to be sent because the computer is detected as being used as a storage facility of copyrighted and pornographic material. The owner of the computer, according to the requirements in the message, is expected to pay a fine of 100 Euros either via Ukash or Paysafecard to unlock the computer. Needless to say, the malicious Gendarmerie Nationale Virus was created to get your money, and it uses deception to achieve that. It does not allow the user to access the desktop and, naturally, the Internet, which is supposedly done in order to constrain the user from further law breaching. In fact, this is done in order to push you into paying the bogus fine as soon as possible. We do not recommend jumping into anything before you fully understand this infection.

The ransom money should not be paid, because the message is simulated, and there is a much easier way to get rid of the annoying lockdown without spending 100 Euros. As the message is a part of the infection, you have to remove Gendarmerie Nationale Virus from the computer, and all the problems that have arisen since the threat’s initial attack will be solved. All that you need to do is install a reputable malware removal application and delete the malicious infection, which will not attack your computer again if you keep the security tools updated. To remove Gendarmerie Nationale Virus and ensure the system’s security, we recommend using SpyHunter. You can download the application by following our easy guidelines.

2. Go to the Start menu, open Run and type in msconfig. Press OK.

Update: 28/07/16

After staying dormant for several years, the devious Gendarmerie Nationale Ransomware is reborn again. At this time, our research team has only detected the French version of this ransomware, but the variants attacking users in other regions could be revived as well. The latest version of this threat has a new interface, but it carries the same message. According to this message, you are accused of child pornography, spam, and the violation of copyrights. Just like with the previous version of this threat, the fine is supposedly issued and collected by the Gendarmerie Nationale; however, this is just a clever disguise to trick you into paying the ransom, which has risen to 200 Euros. Although we still encourage users to use automated malware detection and removal software to eliminate this threat, we propose a manual removal option that can help you remove Gendarmerie Nationale Ransomware quickly and successfully.

N.B. The ransomware could take over your operating system along with other infections. Moreover, the successful entrance of this ransomware reveals that the protection of your system is flawed. Therefore, we encourage you to employ reliable anti-malware software as soon as you eliminate the ransomware.
